It doesn't really matter when none of those "HOF" teammates are actually playing like HOF's.
In fact, Kobe is the only guy on the Lakers worthy of being in the all star game.
Exactly. The only other HOF candidate is Nash. Pau is very borderline, and Howard not even close to a guarantee. Then you factor in that Nash is 39 and Pau is, well, Pau, and the whole, "4 HOFers on one team", is completely overblown. Gasol has been sub par for a couple of seasons now, and Howard is, a clown who jokes around. Dudes are acting like he has prime Magic at the point, prime Malone at PF and prime Kareem at center.
